Oh man – I can’t believe that cookie held you at gunpoint and forced itself inside your mouth against your will.
Sound ridiculous? I agree but I hear all kinds of excuses. Most often I hear “I can’t stop eating _______ (insert your vice).” Uh, yes you can. You can just not eat it. Don’t bring it in the house. Don’t tempt yourself. Give yourself a little credit. You have the will power if you choose to use it.
I am not saying that it is easy to break habits. But you need to realize that you are simply falling into habits and not a slave to the cookie. You CAN create new, healthier habits. It takes a little time and a lot of will. Come on, you’ve got this!
When you hear yourself giving excuses, break it down and listen to yourself. You are stronger than the cookie.
